The New York Rangers pulled off a huge victory in an emotional Game 5 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and they have the chance to tie the series in Game 6. The Blueshirts scored five goals in Game 5's win, and they were propelled by the emotional lift that Martin St. Louis brought to the team.
St. Louis' mother, France, passed away on Thursday, and it was unknown if the Rangers veteran forward would be in any condition to play. He was in the lineup for Game 5, and he will be for Game 6. It will be an emotional Mother's Day matchup, and his father and sister will be in attendance.
At this point, the Blueshirts are playing with house money, and a victory in Game 6 would force a Game 7 that could be a tossup at this point.
If the Rangers want to force a Game 7, here are the things they need to do.
